Tim Scott believes that every student should have access to a quality education regardless of zip code.

Education is the closest thing to magic in America. When a child has access to a variety of educational options, their lives change for the better. Whether it is a public school, private school, homeschool, charter schools, or other models of education, all families deserve equal access to whatever option works best for their child. When parents have a choice, students have a chance.

Tim Scott’s signature legislation is Opportunity Zones.

Opportunity Zones are designed to ensure that PRIVATE investment is directed to economically distressed communities across the country. He wants to make sure no one is left behind and that all Americans have the opportunity to prosper.

Tim does not believe these communities need a handout, but a hand up. In just a few years, Opportunity Zones have generated $75 billion in private investment across the U.S. Tim would like to see this investment continue so that more Americans can be lifted out of poverty through investment aimed directly at where it is needed most. He is committed to defending this vital legislation so that more distressed communities can experience the benefits of economic development, job creation, and revitalization.

Tim Scott believes in the dignity of all work.

Raising the minimum wage to $15 in the midst of a pandemic would crush small businesses to include restaurants that are already struggling to survive. This out-of-touch mandate could cost as many as 3.7 million hardworking Americans their jobs. Tim co-sponsored an amendment to protect these small businesses during the pandemic, however, the fight is not over. As America emerges from the pandemic, ideas that stifle growth will resurface. Tim Scott believes we should build on proposals that drive innovation, empower workers, and grow our economy.

As a former small business owner, Senator Tim Scott is well aware of the consequences of fiscal irresponsibility.

Reckless spending and wasteful government programs threaten the safety, security, and economic well-being of this country. For America to continue to lead, we need to ensure that our fiscal house is in order. This doesn’t just affect Americans today, but future generations of Americans. Tim believes Americans deserve representation that works hard at reducing the national debt and protecting prosperity for all.

Life has intrinsic value and we are endowed by our creator the inalienable right to life.

Tim Scott knows that a society is judged by how it treats its weakest members, that is why it’s time to be a champion for the most defenseless person in the world: the unborn child. Tim believes that life begins at conception and he supports legislation that limits late-term abortions. He also believes that taxpayers should not be required to pay for abortions.

Tim Scott is devoted to defending the right of law-abiding Americans to bear arms to defend themselves, their families, and their property.

Tim believes the Second Amendment is fundamental to ensuring freedom and democracy and it should not be infringed upon.
